Flourishes and Stylish Stems Framelits

  • Stylish Stems Framelits creates beautiful detailed flowers
  • Less than one month to purchase Retiring List items

Stylish Stems Flowers with Flourishes Leaves

Today's card highlights the Stylish Stems Framelits and the Flourishes Dies.  The flowers on today's card were cut with these Stylish Stems framelits. This was an extremely popular set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  The dies and bundles are retiring, and are already sold out.  The coordinating wood mount and clear mount stamp sets -- Special Reasons (142902) -- are still available, and the clear mount Special Reasons stamp stamp set is on sale for 25% off.          

The Stylish Stems Framelit dies include the detailed, cut out flowers in two sizes and also includes die cuts for solid backgrounds for each flower.  Each flower is a three-part sandwich.  The Pool Party solid backing, a layer of velum cardstock cut out with the solid background die and then run through the Softly Falling Embossing Folder to create white dots, and then the detailed flower die cut.  The leaves are from another die set called Flourishes, which is carrying over to the new catalog. 

The ribbon is a 3/8" stitched satin Pool Party ribbon.  The center of each flower includes a Basic Rhinestone, as does the right side of the banner.  On the second version (below), I switched out the Rhinestones for Basic Pearls.  The Calypso Coral Designer Series Paper (DSP) strip along the bottom of the card is from the new Delightful Daisies DSP.  This is one of my favorite times of the year since I have all of the current Stampin' Up! products to play with as well as a selection of new inks, paper, stamps and dies available from the upcoming June 1 catalog on pre-order for demonstrators.


The sentiment is from the Crazy about You stamp set, another retiring set.  This is such a great sentiment set as you can build a wide variety of sentiments from the words in this set.  On the photo above, I created two different sentiments from this set.  This useful set is available in three versions-- wood mounted, clear mounted red rubber, and photopolymer.  All three versions are still available for purchase until May 22 and then, while supplies last until May 31.

Its so sad to see some of my favorite items on the Retiring list.  Many items have already sold out.  Many bundles in the current catalogs will be available as individual items in the new catalog coming out June 1, but you can save 10% by purchasing them now from the current catalog at the bundle prices.   Let me know if you have any questions about how to purchase your favorite bundles -- stamp sets and coordinating dies or punches. As accessories sell out, they will no longer be available.  However, retiring stamps will be restocked until May 22 and then sold only while they last.  See the products retiring May 31some discounted up to 50%
